Vajravarahi is a representation of complete Buddhahood in female form, whose practices are associated with the Chakrasamvara Cycle of Anuttarayoga Tantra.
Although her practice exists in all schools of Tibetan Buddhism, she is particularly associated with the Kagyu tradition and has appeared to and bestowed initiations on some Mahasiddhas over the years.
Making offerings to her image makes a connection with this extremely potent Buddha and seeing her plant seeds of enlightenment in our mindstream.
Her image pacifies our immediate environment, clears negative energy, and protects us from negative interferences.
